Bahrain Courts of Injustice ensure convictions with Confession Extracted by Torture

Bahrain courts ignore testimonies of torture
17 Septemebr, 2013 – ABNA.co

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – Testimonies of torture, brutal assault and coerced confession are repeatedly given by detainees before courts in Bahrain. But the courts do not take any measures in such cases. A number of detainees accused in the claimed “Riffa bombing” have boycotted Sunday’s hearing session (15th September) because they do not trust the judiciary, the detainees’ lawyers said.

The defense lawyers said the detainees have been repeatedly subjected to torture while the courts have failed to take necessary measures.

Al-Wefaq had demanded that an independent and impartial commission be formed to investigate incidents claimed to have happened by the security apparatuses, such as the Riffa bombing. A big number of claims made the security apparatuses have been proven false before courts, leading to the natural conclusion that they lack credibility.
